Repetition

Ray Davies, released on Think Visual, © Davray Music Ltd. 1986

.

You get up in the morning

And every single day

Is just a repetition

It's always been that way

You live alone inside your head

Incommunicado, in the land of living dead

.

Each day's a repetition

Of the one that went before

Like watching an old movie

You can't sit through anymore

Why don't you kick the habit

And walk right out that door?

.

From all the repetition

Day after day

All the repetition

It's always been that way

.

It's in your head, it's in your eyes

You're boring and it's no surprise

With all the repetition

Day after day

All the repetition

.

They say it's time to start all over

And call it a day

But you go right back where you started

Day after day

You go right back to where you started

Day after day, after day, after day, after day

.

You look in the mirror

Is anybody there?

It's only a reflection

That doesn't really care

You're a product of your time

Looking hard for something, but you never saw the sign

.

Lock inside a prison

But that's where you wanna be

Stuck in solitary

And you've thrown away the key

You say you want your freedom

But you don't wanna get away

Then you wake up, it's time for you

To start another day

With all the repetition, day after day, all the repetition

All the repetition day after day

Another chance, another day

You know it's time to get away from all the repetition

Day after day

How long you gonna sit and wait

You're getting on it's getting late

.

They say it's time to start all over

And call it a day

But you go right back where you started

Day after day

You go right back to where you started

Day after day, after day, after day, after day
